around our other ally israel, and that instability continues to grow. one of the things that was helpful from egypt while president mubarak was in charge, at least there was some effort to restrict the transfer of rockets into the gaza strip. so there were some tunnels that would be found, the tunnels had to be kept small so they were able to get smaller rockets into gaza. but now that there's a new regime, apparently the bigger rockets are getting in to gaza and they pose more and more of a threat as they continue to be fired into israel. the action is not only the fall of an ally, president mubarak, but the assistance in bringing to power in egypt the muslim brotherhood. they want to see israel gone and they would also not mind seing the united states gone. it's important when formulating foreign policy that the united states, particularly the obama administration, decide, are we going to be assisted with our own personal security issue here in the united states by the actions we take or are the re-- reactions that are going to be caused by our actions actually going to cause greater t

of the world are on the gaza strip for eight days. hamas rained rockets down on israel. the mullas shipped rockets to the sudan, sent them up into egypt before smuggling them in tunnels. israel responded by doing the only thing a responsible nation could do, it defended itself. now the united states needs to show there are consequences for attacking this sovereign nation, consequences for hamas and iran as well. we should have stricter enforcement of sanctions against iran. iran and hamas both need to be held accountable for these attacks. israel are the moral right and legal duty to defend itself from the barbarians, hamas. there is a cease-fire but only until hamas obtains more iranian missiles. hamas is the puppet and iran is the police departmentetteeer. the iranian regime need to go. the iranian people need to do away with the little guy in the desert, ahmadinejad. and that's the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. the house will be in order. further requests for nute speeches? are there further requests for one-minute speeches? the gent
church, the evangelical lutheran church wanting to end all relationships with the state of israel, i think our country -- we are literally being occupied by a foreign government by the state of israel. i have to tell you, when you look at the economic apartheid on wall street where the american people are treading on one platform while the zionist regime in control of our country is trading, we are becoming a nation that is completely and utterly occupied. host: that was patrick from pennsylvania. hi, judy. caller: hi. i just want to say that my husband dave and i are very optimistic about the future. we are happy that the president won. our concern -- your last caller was talking about religion and the churches. we don't see why they should be playing a part in our government and big we are concerned about the separation of church and state. we are also concerned about the racial hatred that is going on, especially in florida. that is a concern because we live with that. i think a lot of it stems from fox news and too many people like rush limbaugh. free speech is great but when it
a hero. i would like your opinion about what is going on right now with israel and palestine. to gaza. i think they are acting upon hamas in order to put their blame -- against iran and see what your opinions would be. guest: that has been a mess for a long time and i believe we should be noninterventionists. we should not pick sides. i think it would be best for israel and best for that whole region, so i don't believe in getting involved. it is a real mess. it's been created by too much and too many outsiders interfering. but this gaza thing, i mean, attacking and bombing gaza, that doesn't make a whole lot of sense. what threat are the palestinians? to israel or anybody else? they are living in total poverty. they have an employment rate probably about 50%. sure, there are going to be militants. you have to understand why they're militants. you know, what is the reasons? they have been held more or less in bondage for decades now. it's a real mess. i think we should not be involved. i think the people there should solve the problems and eventually israel won't be able to depend upon t
in gaza rained down on israel this week. israelies were injured and at least one was killed. but it sure is right -- absolute right of self-defense is responded to defend its people. prime minister netanyahu said it best. the terrorists are committing a double war crime. they fire at israeli citizens and they hide behind palestinianian civilians. but the government in egypt, which was backed by the administration, has condemned israel, not hamas. the terrorist group hamas doesn't want peace with israel. it wants war. it kills israeli citizens and then hides behinds the skirts of palestinian women. israel has the moral right and duty to defend itself from the bar barrack hamas. the united states should be in total support of israel, our ally. the u.s. should be bold in its condemnation of hamas and the u.s. should be bold in this continuing war by terrorist, like hamas, on civilized nations and that's just the way it is. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from oregon rise? the gentleman is recognized for one minute. mr. blumenauer: thank you, madam speaker. perha
development in israel and gaza. tomorrow we will discuss party in the united states. after that, the executive director for the national congress of american indians explains with the fiscal cliff and native americans and the alaskan native communities. plus, e-mails, phone calls, and tweets. >> there are many people who might even take issue with great saving the union during the civil war. did it lincoln did that? he did. i will not a grant is the only person to save the union, but he was the commanding general of the army that would think the policy to affect, and he was the general who accepted the surrender of the army of northern virginia under robert e. lee that ended the war. if anybody won the war on the battlefield, if you could say that any one person did, and of course you cannot, but one of the things we do when history is we generalize, simplify, because history reality is simply too complicated to get our heads are around if we deal with it in the full complexity. granted save the union during the civil war, and i do contend he same award during reconstruction as well. -- he sav
that iran does not a nuclear weapon. israel is our best friend. we need to protect israel. yes, obviously i could if it were in the strategic best interest of the country and the strategic best interest of israel, which is often the strategic best interest of the country. we need to keep iran from a nuclear weapon, but we need to do everything -- sanctions seem to be working now. when the best things is that we have involved other nations in basically forcing iran to allow people to come and. >> just to clarify, i think i heard you say that under extreme circumstances you could a vote to support israel in going to war against iran. >> it would be extreme circumstances. we need to do everything we can, and there are lots of things we can do even apart from sanctions. this goes back to being nimble and strategic in terms of how we deal with this piece in question. >> i have supported israel for a long time. i will continue to support israel. our intel -- i have said, i have doubts about it. israel does not get to make a mistake. is a fatal mistake for the nation of israel if they except accep
is the ongoing confrontation between israel and hamas. the headline from the "new york times" on the front page, israel and hamas step up air attacks in the gaza clash. israel and hamas brushed aside international calls for restraint on thursday and executed their lethal conflict over gaza where palestinian militants launched hundreds of rockets into israel territory targeting tell aviv for the first time. and israel intensifies and sent tanks for a possible invader. a story from early this morning notes that egypt opens a tiny window of truce in the gaza confrontation. the prime minister arrived in gaza strip on friday officially to show solidarity with the palestinian people after two days of relentless attacks by israeli war planes determined to end the militant rocket fire at israel. israel said it would cease-fire during the visit if hamas did too, but rockets fired from gaza hit several sites in israel and they responded with an attack on the house of hamas's -- that's it for this first segment of the "washington journal." up next, we'll have senator ron johnson, a republican of wisconsin
for the middle east? guest: the middle east is still in a great flux right now, issues with iran, israel. they're seeing some ratcheting up in gaza where they have seen hundreds of rockets firing in tension. there is a parliamentary elections in january which looks good for president netanyahu, but there's no way reinvigorated left in israel and is providing some opposition. host: critical of netanyahu? guest: more so than the have been before. the parliamentary process in israel is such that netanyahu can rely on some factional far right parties which have helped him in his coalition government, but yes. there's now a sense of a somewhat reinvigorated left in israel that had been wary of his bluster on iran. they would like to see a reinvigoration of the peace talks. host: what will be the focus there in the second obama administration? guest: the administration has been pretty clear. obviously, i am not privy to the intelligent but the reporting we have done in foreign policy is that there's no sense that iran is exceedingly close. the help of the cartoon picture saying this was teh red line
of rage. israel shoots down hamas missiles and we'll have more on this late in the program and the calculating the cliff. cover of cq weekly. republicans are talking about higher taxes as the president presses issue. and then there's this story from the "washington post". headline. aarp flexes muscle in debt talks the lo big power house for older americans last year made a doctor make it a concession amid a national debate over where overhauling national security. the group said it was open the cuts in benefits. liberal groups that apposed changes was enormous and this time around as washington debates how to tame the debt, aarp is flat lay posed to any benefit reduction. rejection of any significant changes to the safety net could be a major factor as policy making seeking a deal to put the government's finances in order through raising taxes and cutting spending possibly the popular entitlement as medicare and social securitys news makers at ten and 7:00 eastern on the west coast. the current head of the financial services roundtable. he weighed in on all of this on a pro
by -- met by some tough language from the security council. not from the government, israel or anyone. it was the security council under the charter of the united nations that put that pressure. of course we know that this system worked extremely well. it was 100% performance as a matter of fact. it's not bad for any u.n. organization to get the task and then i think it's probably the only one which succeeded to make it 100% performance. so the -- that means that both destruction capabilities and the monetary capabilities were forcefully placed. so everything looked shiny and fine until the u.s. government -- it was in spring of 1997, through madeline albright made the statement at george mason university, well, it looks like sanctions are -- disarmament is going well. if it goes well we can still not lift the sanctions which was a condition under the security council. sanctions -- so we can't lift the sanctions until saddam hussein is removed. so that came my obsession with the regime change. that, of course, destroyed in the sense the institution and operations. so i think that expe
what the middle east peace deal is going to be. that is a matter between israel and the palestinians, and the u.s. can nudge and between and all of that. but in the end, if netanyahu and the palestinians are not in the position to bring resolution to this, then at it is not really going to be something that president obama can do. certainly something he would like very much to do. netanyahu -- i mean, now that the election is over, i think we will see prime minister netanyahu have a recalculation of the relationship with obama and how it has to go forward. it has not been close in the previous four years. it has been pragmatic and grudgingly accepting a reality on both sides, but there is an opportunity for that to change. host: do you have thoughts on that, scott? guest: just a follow-up. netanyahu had a personal relationship with romney and was a very secret about who he wanted to win the election and that was not president obama, who applied quite a bit of pressure to israel in his first term to try to secure a peace deal called israel settlements in the west bank. israel felt sor
with israel and palestine. possible actions against iran and may be pulling us in. guest: that has been a mess for a long time and we should not take sides. it would be best for that region. i don't believe in getting involved. has been created by to many outsiders interfering. -- that doesn't make a lot of sense. what threat are the palestinians? they are living in total poverty. sure, there are going to be militants. what is the reason? they have been held in bondage for decades. i think we should not be involved. eventually is real and not be able to depend on the united states -- eventually israel will not be able to depend on the united states. it makes no sense to do that. that is what they are anxious for us to do. what happens when we go broke and when it is acknowledged and we cannot afford to feed ourselves? our military is going to go home. we will not be there to take care of israel. all the people we have offended around the world, they are going to gang up on us and it will not be good for israel because we will not be capable of providing protection. host: this is the front page
's the front page of the boston globe this morning -- clinton was dispatched by president obama to israel and is meeting today with egyptian officials and palestinian officials as well. the headline from the tribune -- late tuesday night clinton met with benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem and plans to go to the west bank on wednesday. clinton is preparing to step down early next year. one story this morning, some breaking news from jerusalem. this is according to a dap. really rescue services said there have been explosions on a bus across the military headquarters in tel aviv. the agency says at least 10 people were injured in wednesday's blast. the explosion comes amid an ongoing israeli operation rollers.aza's hamas so, more information on that incident probably coming later today. but we are taking your calls this morning on your confidence in the economy, your thoughts on the fiscal cliff, and how you are preparing for that. marc is from 0 highfill on our independent line. -- from ohio. caller: good morning. i'm a person who believes we need to do something radical, which a lot of peopl
it is vitally important we cast our candidates on -- -- that we support the nation of israel. support the typical definition of marriage between a man and woman. host: is this something you were given to read? caller: "usa today." i am just finishing up your yen physical values. this november 6 prayer with me that america will remain one nation under god. that is written by dr. billy graham. i want to echo that, because i think we really need to focus on getting our eyes back on god, and i think mitt romney is really a constituent to embrace those physical values and will work for us. host: did you always feel that way about mitt romney? throughout the whole campaign? caller: yes, i did. i think america needs to read between the lines. many appeared to promote what president obama says and does. i think it is unfair, and i think it is biased. i think people that read the paper and view the t d need to read between the lines and understand what the president and as candidates is really saying. i believe it romney, if you look carefully at what he supports and opposes does support any o
biased israel view. i can tell you what is going on. i love president assad. i stand with them. there has always been peace there. the women wear jeans, they'd drive, they vote. it is more of a democracy and a lot of ways and here. host: what do you think policy should be regarding syria? 5000 people killed in the uprising. caller: those rebels are not syrian. they were planted there. it is really funny. when obama put troops into israel, i think he did all of this for reelection. i am relieved mitt romney did not get elected even though i did not vote for either. i think obama might do the right thing and cut ties with israel. host: we will go to a report actually on syrian president assad. this in "usa today." he said "i am not a puppet." we have a few minutes left on the first segment of "the washington journal." we will go to pete in rhode island on the democrat line. caller: good morning. i would like to see him focus on the economy. host: specifically what part? caller: let's go with the fiscal cliff coming up. my thoughts were my belief is, and i hope somebody calls and corrects me

on this friday, november 23, 2012. we begin overseas. the cease-fire between hamas and israel has held. in egypt, president mohamed morsi showed his authority yesterday. a startling port grab, freeing himself from traditional oversight. president obama followed through on an annual tradition of calling 10 service members to personally thank them for their service. the washington times and the new york times reporting there are now more state capitols dominated by a single party that than at any time since 1952. the washington times question, is this the answer, secure for gridlock? we'll get your answers. send us a tweet or post your comments on facebook. also, you can e-mail us. we will begin with the front page of the washington times for our question for all new this morning, there headline -- do you think this could be a cure for gridlock? the new york times also has this headline this morning -- we want to hear from you this morning. let me give you the phone numbers again. how did you vote in the last election? did you vote with the intention of one-party rule in your state legislature? wh
election. he basically said romney is a better friend of israel, please vote for him. not in so many words but if he were jewish and in florida, you got the message. if he saw the clip on youtube of him offered the congratulating the american ambassador to israel over the election, he knows that might have been a mistake at this point and it is hurting him in israel. it would be interesting to see what it does to israeli american relations. i still believe the republican party has document up its faith on the tooth fairy. at the table still believe tax cut increase revenue -- i think they will still believe that tax cuts increase revenue. i do believe there will be some bipartisanship, and better bipartisan mood despite the lingering effects will nonsense. >> very good overview. ok. dr. chavis, still free to wander as dr. jeremy mayor did. >> my comments were set up to observe the election in which i think has been quite historic. and we will be talking about it for years and trying to figure it out. one a fragile coalition of women, african-american, latino, the young, and other minoritie
, the president has not visited israel once. the jewish commercially -- community -- we feel he doesn't have our back. romney has made a strong point that he will have our back. host: did romney's relationship with the jewish community come up? guest: as a candidate he talks about the fact that he has a personal relationship dating back to time and harvard with ande minister aniston netanyahu that will be benefit. he said the united states position towards israel will be complete support. it was not clear how he would respond if israel tried to take out nuclear facilities in iraq. i think republicans feel they have made some headway, particularly in florida with jewish voters. we will see. host: brian mooney has covered politics in massachusetts for decades. he has been with "the boston globe" since 1988 and has been a political columnist. right now he goes by the title reporter. a story you did last year when health care was a big issue. looking back on the health-care issue, you recall that he went to get his official portrait done. he would be at his desk wearing a business suit and tie. host
made history.

the israel palestinian conflict, there was an attack, several hundred million what is called the denial of service attack. i think that is an example of something that reflects how prolific these are. host: let's look at a story from -- guest: that is significant and enter a couple of ways. the sheer magnitude of it is something that redefines paradigm when it comes to conflict and how we fight each other. in 2007 in estonia during a two week. , i do not know if you'll remember a massive cyber attack that resulted in not just infrastructure being taken down such as military or something uniquely defense, but even more severely, atms, gas pumping equipment, things that really impacted everyday people. i think when you saw that, even though it was five years ago and you see it now on a greater magnitude, it really illustrates the increasing importance that is needed on this issue. host: president obama took to the pages of "the wall street journal" on the threat he sees from cyber attacks. here is a story from a few days ago. what is the government impose a concerned about cyber? guest: t
. they could not celebrate this success without the leadership of steve israel, the chair. when i asked him to take this responsibility to serve our country and colleagues, i i said to all of you that he is a gold standard of a member of congress. he knows the policy. he cares about american people. that drives him to do the politics to increase our numbers to pass legislation that takes us for to improve the lives of americans. before i bring him on, i wanted to have a representative of the freshman class to speak on behalf of the class. i am very honored to welcome a fighter for the middle class, a real representative of his generation, congressman alec patrick murphy. his election is a cuase for celebration. his election sends the message to a new generation of americans that their voices will be heard at the table. congratulations, congressman a -elect, patch of mercy. -- patrick murphy. >> thank you for your leadership and for being here with us. thank you for your support. my name is patrick murphy from florida district 18. the youngest member of congress. i did defeatists someone you
a viable independent palestine living side-by-side with a jewish and democratic israel. my longtime friend and colleague ehud barak is here. i knowed he would agree with that as both of the most decorated soldier in israeli history and as a distinguished public servants. i have more to say about this later, but i did want to begin by recognizing the challenge that this will surely present. i want to add my words of welcome to all of you. i want to thank bill for being here -- we reallyvery much appreciate your participation. foreign minister -- a good friend and colleague who is a top global thinker, well deserved because of the careful comprehensive views he has developed over many years of hard work about issues fundamental to freedom. of course, i see right before me a wonderful friend and colleague, former senator john warner, who has been a great example of public service, military and civilian, his entire life. and to all our friends and colleagues from the diplomatic corps, and thanks of course to david and susan and everyone at "foreign policy" for joining with the state department
to egypt. right now egypt is threatening israel. egypt is threatening the region because of the arabs spring. we have to rethink the dollars we're spending the egypt. we have to say these dollars are for maintaining a security and a piece. if you are not participating, you do not get them. we have to continue our commitment in foreign policy to israel. israel is our strongest ally. it is our sister country. we need to do everything we can to fulfil our commitment. the military aides we still is a real is that right here in america. when you look at the arab spring, there was a lot of hope that this would be continuing democracy, and we're falling into what has become not secular governments, but religious governments, and we need to be gathering up all of our allies and be making a firm statement that this region needs to be statement -- stabilized. we need to protect the people who serve and our state departments, not in all facets, whether ngo's the state department. it cannot procure them, they should not be there. >> i would like to redirect this back to the representative. he spo
syria and have an impact and obviously israel which is having already grave concerns as we do about, for example, movements of chemical weapons that might occur in such a chaotic atmosphere. and they could have an impact not just within syria but on the reas a whole. i'm encouraged to see that the syrian opposition created an umbrella group that may have more cohesion than they had in the past. we're going to be talking to them, my envoys are going to be traveling to various meetings taking place with the international community and the opposition. we consider them a legitimate representative of the aspirations of the syrian people. we're not yet prepared to recognize them as some sort of government in exile. but we do think it is it's a broad-based representative group. one of the questions we're going to continue to express is making sure that that opposition is committed to a democratic syria, an inclusive syria, a moderate syria. we have seen extremist elements insinuate themselves into the opposition. and one of the things that we have to be on gourd about, particularly when wi
of their force projection in the persian gulf into that conflict. i think there is hope that the u.s.-israel relationship is strong and open enough and the lines of communication are open up that it would not happen. one of the other things that if it may give a little positivity towards that is a concern that the nuclear facilities are so far in the ground that israel does not producing a satisfactory assault. they would need u.s. plant emissions to carry some of those weapons. perhaps that might give some hope there would be communication, if there is an attack down the line, that the two countries would be to work together and cordray. host: 3 more, go to foreignpolicy.com. thank you for talking to our viewers. guest: thank you for having me. host: that does it for today. we will be back live tomorrow morning but lawmakers make their way back for the lame-duck session that begins today. we will be up there taking your calls and your comments and questions. thank you for watching today.

to make israel safe and they forget about the united states, we need to get back to a party, the republican party has to get back to a party for the united states, not for the rest of the world, not for israel. marco rubio, they have prodded him out already for the presidential election this year and for 2016. he will get beat by anybody the democrats put up. the republican party as it stands now, run into the ground by these neocons, is a doomed party. they are a dinosaur. you can forget about them. they will never ever be relevant again. host: ms. moore from rick santorum in usa today -- jim from grand forks, north dakota. the future of the gop, republicans only. caller: i just got out here from pennsylvania. i spoke with pedro couple months ago after saving four year period ho. what took you i came out here for all kinds of big jobs and big money. i'm freezing to death right now in a motel, but i got a great job offer already. i'm happier than ever in my life. there is beautiful people out here and the beautiful red river. as of bald eagles fly over my shoulder the other
, working with steve israel to make sure we had the intellectual, financial, whatever resources to prevail in those races. my second time that i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election, because everybody here was getting a lot of calls. winning is very noisy. not succeeding is -- the bells don't ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. and then to absorb the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. but i -- what i talked about here about changing the role of money and politics is really a very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say that, oh, and i read in the course of this week, money didn't make any difference in the campaign. they alwasted their money. well, that really wasn't true. the president of the united states, the most well-known famous respected person on the planet had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that other big money was putting out there. senate races, house races. tammy douglas had $

about five races that we were watching very carefully. my first time was spent working with steve israel to make sure we had the resources to prevail in those races. my second time i spent was to call people who were not successful in this particular election. everybody here was getting a lot of calls -- a running is very noisy. not succeeding, the phones do not ring that much. so i wanted to hear from them, what their views were about how we go forward. then to take the calls of my colleagues to see what their view is. what i talked about here, about changing the role of money in politics, is really very important motivator for me to stay in the leader's office. i think it must be done. when people say money did not make any difference in the campaign, they all wasted their money -- that really was not true. the president of the united states, the most well known, respected person on the planet, had to spend about $1 billion to set the record straight from what that big money was putting out there. senate races, house races, tammy duckworth had $7 million spent against her of outside mo

iran or syria or now with israel's problems on the gaza and so on, both sides of be careful. they do not look at things exactly the same way. it will not matter if we find that things the things to get done are being stymied. i am not predicting that. i would pick a star next to that. see somee're going to renewed efforts over the next several months to see if there is a path for north korea. i do not see the obama administration changing the terms of agreement. one just reiterated that we will not. you also have a new government in seoul. no matter who wins, they will be looking toward some more engagement. that could indeed complement -- complicate things in the u.s. and china. on these issues, i think the focus was absolutely right. china is basically, if you talk privately to folks from the mainland, what you get is we did not start it. we fix it. this is a rather unfortunate attitude. it may be pretty all too accurate a reading. i have nothing to add to what he just said about the possible involvement at the united states. attitudes here about what china is doing are not very po
